Slash recorded an unreleased song with Chester Bennington
Posted on 20 Aug 2018
Slash has revealed that he recorded an unreleased song with late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington. "When I was doing my first solo record, I worked with a lot of different people, some of whom, for whatever reason, didn't end up on the record," the Guns N' Roses guitarist tells Variety. "One was with Chester." Slash said he recorded demos for the track, called "Doctor Alibi," with Bennington, but "Linkin Park at the time didn't allow it to happen." He ended up recording another version of the track with Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister, which appears Slash's 2010 self-titled album. As for whether the unreleased collaboration could see the light of day, Slash says he sent the demos to Bennington's family, so "it would be totally up to them." "It was really good," Slash says of the song. "[Bennington] was awesome. It would be fine with me if they wanted to [release] it. Musically it's basically the same as the Lemmy song, but the lyrics are really poignant." Slash will release a new album with his band Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators called Living the Dream on September 21. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
